A 20-year-old man shot and killed in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE — A 20-year-old man was killed in a shooting near 42nd Street and Silver Spring Drive on Wednesday morning, Jan. 8 — and with investigators combing the scene, three neighbors told FOX6 News the violence and crime in the area have gotten so bad — they’re out.

It happened shortly before 10 a.m.

Police quickly made an arrest as neighbors wondered what might have led to the violence.

“Sometimes I don’t even want my kids to play outside because I have to be worried about, is somebody gonna start shooting?” said Javetta Beamon, neighbor.

Investigators focused on an alley between 42nd Street and Hopkins Street — near Silver Spring.

“It’s not the first time this happened,” said Daniel Morris, neighbor. “It was still somewhat surprising.”

“It happens every day,” said Davis. “Shocking to be over here, though — so close.”
